    Hey everyone! I wanted to post this while the traffic on here is still heavy so we can hopefully get a participant for every team. Last year was a lot of fun but we started it a little too late so we didn't have enough time to do free agency before the real free agency started and it kind of fizzled out. This year I'm going to stay on top of it so we can actually finish it.

    Here are the details from last year:

    Everyone playing would be assigned a team (or two if we only have 15 teams) and you'd be the GM of your team with complete control over any transactions. We'd then set a date for our fake NBA Draft. Before and during the draft you would be allowed to make as many trades as you want as long as they work under the CBA. You take on your team's exact roster, draft picks, etc. If it goes well we could even find a way to do a fake free agency.

    As long as you are active and participate in it this type of thing is a lot of fun. It doesn't really matter how well you do as long as you are trying and don't just vanish so we have dormant teams. At the end we can compare rosters and see how everyone did and even revisit it at different points of the season or run 2K simulations to see what teams would win.

    If you want to try it all you have to do is respond and put your top 3 choices in teams and I will decide who gets what team. For those that want the Blazers I will have a drawing/contest to see who gets them. If we don't get enough people I'm thinking about hitting up other forums of the leftover teams and getting people to join the site to participate.

    I'm going to tag those that played last year, hopefully you all want to play again.

    @JDC (you should really do it this year, it's very helpful for locking in your draft previews)

    Here's a link to last year's thread if you want to get a feel of how it works.

    It would be cool to see a bunch of other regulars try it this year.

    I'm guessing the Pelicans are going to be one of the more popular choices.

    I'm up for it.
    Obviously, I'd like the Blazers!
    Teams that I think would be interesting to be in charge of.
    The New York Knicks, Sacremento Kings, Clippers, and Detroit.


    I know I said more than 3 teams, just throwing out a few more just in case that helps you with the decision making the process.

    It was fun! It can get real un fun real quick though, because its a lot of work for people and because of the effort thats put it in, they want people to also take it seriously and not start drama. In other words dont be Magic Johnson and Dell Demps.

    But I can be a combo of Lavar Ball and Neil Olshey right? ;)

    I should play./ Id be great fodder for you guys to pick on.... But Ill just piss people off by either not being ready when I should or just not knowing enough of the CBA.

    I have an idea for this years mock off-season that I don't expect people to want to go along with, but I'll throw it out there anyway.

    My idea is that we make a "trade-fee" of $1 or $2 for every trade (maybe only for trades involving players, not trading up or down with draft picks?)

    All that money goes in a pool and then whoever has the best "off-season" as voted on by an outside group of people wins the pool.

    This would make it a little more realistic as people wouldn't just make a bunch of trades just to make trades, and it'd motivate people to try their best.

    Something I want to do with this is to make it into a series of videos for an NBA oriented channel I'm going to start in the next couple weeks.
